The crosstalk and layering issue occurs with whatever mode is selected as is the apparent loss of resolution/detail.

However, I know that a friend/colleague of mine who is reviewing the VW500 for a well known website is experiencing the same issue. So it may be that here in the UK there are a couple of VW500s being sent around for review, and one has an issue with 3d while the other doesn't. I'm going to try and pop along to the distributor tomorrow and compare the 3d performance on their demo machine if possible.
110" , 16:9 and only 1.0 gain unfortunately will be weak . My HW50ES on a 95" diagonal 16:9 with 1.4 gain screen was weak. Like I mentioned, the 500 is a little brighter but will not make up the difference on a bigger screen combined with lower gain.
Hope you figure out the crosstalk. One more thing to consider is that some movies are great in 3D , others are terrible and are more prone to crosstalk . You may want to check this out a little more, do a Google search etc. I read this in an article somewhere a while back, this is not first hand experience. To be honest I had little trouble with my HW50ES in 3D and the little that I did see did not bother me.
I will certainly be plenty pissed with Sony if I encounter these issues with my new 500 PJ. At this price point, it would be totally unacceptable.
